Now that is a HEADLINE and a half! Good find GW.
I see that Jean Wallace is mentioned (featured several times here on 'noirish'), as well as another dancer from Florentine Gardens,
Yvonne DeCarlo.

I don't think Sophie Tucker was one of those girls. (I'm not even going to ask what t.m.i. means)

I found this photograph at https://sites.google.com/site/hollywoodtheatres/hawaii
but it is actually a LAPL photo. I've been looking for it at LAPL so I can find out what the heck happened. It looks like an out of control car might have mowed down five people!

You're a gem GW.
I googled Daddy Rango and all that came up was that one flickr photograph.

Pepper trees in Sonora Town.


ebay

What's most interesting about this cabinet card is that mansion peeking through the pepper tree branches.

Great little article..perfect for October. Thanks for the link mdiederi.

It's funny that they call the old Bernheimer Mansion (Yamashiro) a bungalow...but it's tantalizing that there could be old tunnels running
beneath the estate grounds.



below: Just a reminder of how impressive the Berheimer Estate was/is.


http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...postcount=5278

The Berheimer Estate is now Yamashiro Restaurant. I had dinner here with friends many years ago...it was very atmospheric and exotic.
(with great views!)

Update on the "ghost building"

Here is another one of my few and far between posts on this vast thread of knowledge...
Awhile back, I posted some pictures of the abandoned section of the Alexandria hotel (shown here again for reference). I read an article in the downtown news that someone has bought it and plans on turning it into lofts...
Now many buildings down here have been converted to lofts, and have had their historic features redone and made to look all nice again, and you may be wondering why this is such a big deal when its already been done.

Its is a big deal.

An 8 floor building.

No stairs.

No elevator.

Sealed off from the world for 78 years.

I cant wait to hear about all of the little bits of stuff that they find inside, even though I highly doubt that it will be much of any value to the average person, to us lot on the other hand, we may find it absolutely fascinating.

http://www.ladowntownnews.com/news/b....88086&cbst=38

"Constructed as an annex to the Alexandria Hotel in 1910, it earned its moniker not because it’s haunted, but because most people don’t realize the building even exists. It has been shuttered since 1934 not because business is bad, but because the edifice has no stairs or elevators."




Photos by me.
